Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Here's a little mod to make the Bon Voyage towels available in Bodyshop, CAS, and in-game. It unlocks all 4 towels for teens, ya/adults, and elders - male & female. Plus one bonus red towel for ya/adult males! Yeah I couldn't resist. The red towel is a normal recolour, you can install only the red towel or only the mod or both.

All of these towels are categorised as undies. More male towels available here.

Installation Instructions:
You can put the "fanseelamb_unlocked-bon-voyage-towels.package" file in your Downloads folder, but if you do, the delete button will be enabled in Body Shop and CAS. Do NOT delete them in Body Shop or CAS. Doing so may corrupt some of your game files. To hide the Maxis towels again, delete my package file from your Downloads folder. If you don't trust yourself to not delete them in Body Shop, make a subfolder in the following location and put the file there instead of in your Downloads folder. This way the delete button will be disabled.

C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 YOUR LATEST EP\TSData\Res\Catalog\Skins

(or the corresponding folder on your system if your game is not in C:\Program Files)

      Young Adult
Clothing Type:
Clothing Style:
Other Type:

This is so cool! Thank you for uploading this!
If you ever feel like doing more unlocking, could you try to unlock the female Housekeeper outfits? I think they are really neat. If you could, that would be great!
Thanks again!

Oh! These I've been waiting for, I knew someone clever would read my mind...
I love unlocked items, and now I've learnt not to delete them from within the game - it was very odd when all my officers walked around in pin striped suits rather than uniform after I made that mistake before lol

Thanks so much! I've already got a version of this mod in my game, but yours looks better, and the red towel is very snazzy.

They're so cute! But I uninstalled Bon Voyage a week ago -cries in a corner-

Nice addition to your outerwear unlocker set I'm already using. I was toying with unlocking this towels myself. Thanks for doing this.

Put the files in the overrides folder. That's what it's for.

I've found that when I put outfit unlocker files in Overrides folder, unlocked outfits do not show up in Body Shop.

you don't need this hack to get them!! in the CAS screen, press ctrl+shift+c type the code: boolprop testingcheatsenabled true, press enter. Then press shift+n and you get all hidden clothes and hairs!!!

Uh yeah, that's all well and good for making new sims in CAS. But if you want existing sims to be able to wear these towels you do need the mod.

If you have FT it seems the file needs to go in Free Time/TSData/Res/Catalog/Skins if you put them in the BV they don't show up for FT time players (at least not for me anyway)

Ah yes, thanks for the reminder, Tasha. Unlocker mods like this usually need to be in the latest EP folder if you install them that way. I updated the instructions to reflect that.
